to say for the country, only nasty words to spew about the people running it or hoping to. john mccain, who served the country so admirably, has become an angry fellow from dawn until dusk taking an occasional break to remember who he is and saying enough of this when his new allies get out of hand. when ted cruz starts attacking the loyalty to america of one of mccain's fellow vietnam vets, a combat vet at that. the viciousness is something we haven't seen before because of the combination of mccarthyism and this weird unconnectedness, attacking chuck hagel, for example, because no one will give us info or anyone info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard
was a threat. >> oh, yes they did. that's when john mccain's numbers spiked when she was announced. >> bill: i would like to thank kirsten powers in not mentioning me i know she wanted to lowering the maturity age down to 5 years old. i know i'm part of that howard kurtz criticizing me for my drone coverage. he will enter the no spin zone. dennis miller on the state of the union and the pope i had enough of feeling embarrassed about my skin. [ designer ] enough of just covering up my moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. i decided enough is enough. ♪ [ spa lady ] i started enbrel. it's clinically proven to provide clearer skin. [ rv guy ] enbrel may not work for everyone -- and may not clear you completely, but for many, it gets skin clearer fast, within 2 months, and keeps it clearer through 6 months. [ male announcer ] enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events, including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders, and allergic reactions have occurred. before starting enbrel, your doctor should test you for t
and exactly what he did. how is he going to work with republicans, john mccain who will be coming up in a couple of minutes saying frankly republicans don't like him. it's personal. >> i had an opportunity to talk to senator mccain about this. several other republicans are uncomfortable how this has played out and why i think senator mccain and others say they intend to vote to end this filibuster as soon as they get back from the recess. i think senator mccain and others know we have to work together to get this thing done, because when it comes a national defense, national security, that at least has to be above politics. i hate to see this being played politics here in washington. >> is there anything else that was not disclosed, anything that hurts his reputation, his views about israel? anything? >> no. >> nothing to worry about at all? >> no. >> what about ben ghazi and the attack? they said they want to get additional information about what the president about the night of the attack. some of the advice he was given and talking points and what not. has the president finished o
steadily. everybody knows where everybody stands so let's have a vote on it. >> i want to play what john mccain said this morning. >> leaks don't happen in washington by accident. this raises the question that many of us continue to wonder about. does the president really want a result or does he want another cadgeal to beat up republicans to get political advantage in the next election. >> who and/or what do you believe is behind the leak? >> it is interesting what senator mccain said about the next election because president obama was just reelected. house democrats would like to win back control of the house and they look at this as a political tool for them. there is a plan floating out there and they are talking to different groups. they are not really talking to republicans on capitol hill as senator mccain is pointing out. the nitty-gritty particulars of these two proposals that are out there, the gang of eight that senator mccain is a part of, the principles there are not all that different from what is in this draft legislation that was leaked to "usa today." the problem is it is all a
didn't exactly treat him with kid gloves. listen to this exchange with senator john mccain. >> will you answer the question, please. were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge blunder in thist dangerous country since vietnam. correct or incorrect? yes-or-no answer. >> my reference to --. >> are can you answer the question? the question is, were you right or wrong? that is a straightforward question. i would like to have an answer. >> i am not going do give you a yes-or-no answer. >> he refused to answer the question for the record. >>gregg: john mccain may have missed his calling, he should have been a lawyer. so, how many republicans will vote for their former colleague. we have john leboutillier, former republican congressman, for new york. pat caddell, former pollster for president carter and doug schoen former pollster for bill clinton i googled worst confirmation hearing ever and up popped chuck hagel. i thought it would be john tower or bork. hagel got the worse. >> here is what happened. bottom line, chug hagel demonstrated why i believe he is not qualified to be
exchanges came from senator john mccain. >> will you please answer the question? willwere you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> my reference to -- >> are you going to answer the question senator hagel? the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straight forward question. >> well -- >> i would like to hear whether you're right or wrong and then you're free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer. >> well, let the record show that you refused to answer that question. >> gregg: of course, john mccain was the champion of the surge. what are hagel's chances of winning confirmation? let's bring in the washington time's columnist charlie hurt. it's the good old boys club in the u.s. senate. he's going to get confirmed, right? >> yeah. i think that that hearing will go down as one of the worst in television history. i mean, he was unprepared. he didn't know what he was talking about. he state wrong policy at ti
of war. >> any trial would be encroachment in the american of senator john mccain and simply prefers taking drones away from the cia. >> since when is the intelligence agency supposed to be a force of drones going around killing people. >> i believe it's for the department of defense. >> senator mccain calls the current situation is a conundrum and the drones will kill americans overseas and give them miranda rights when captured here in the united states. >> harris: peter doocy, thank you very much. fox urgent. a 1 million dollar reward to catch a killer, death and destruction so far. the mayor and police chief saying this is the highest bounty in that city's history and calling christopher dorner a domestic terrorist. and this detail, the news conference that just wrapped up this evening was held underground for the department's own safety. as you may know from our coverage on fox, dorner put out an onhine manifesto naming 50 targets. those officers and their families under tight protection tonight. dorner vowing revenge for getting kicked off the force years ago. he's suspected of
think, i think conservatives are going to win just as they did with john mccain on amnesty for illegals, but not if they're too demoralized to call their congressman and write their senators, we're probably not going to like obama's cabinet nominees over the next few years. we still have 2014 and republicans who hold the house and we may pick up the senate. but don't be demoralized republicans, and it's curious how the gun debate started and this time it's different, we're pushing gun control and a few weeks go by and it seems to have kind of petered out. same thing with amnesty. >> sean: and he's a -- he's a pediatric neuro surgeon, and he was the guy that confronted obama over medical savings accounts, the debt, the deficit and i'm watching his speech and then i interviewed him and i'm thinking why don't republicans say what he's saying? because it's common sense. >> right. >> sean: it's appealing. it resonates. >> right, and-- >> why is he saying these things? >> it was magnificent and you say he confronted obama over these things. it wasn't confrontational, it was pure common sense
on the chuck hagel vote on armed services. when john mccain comes in as a critic and ends up having to defend chuck hagel because of the very sharp attack from ted cruz. let's watch. >> we saw with his nomination something truly extraordinary which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. i would suggest to you that is unprecedented to see a foreign nation like iran publicly celebrating a nomination. >> i want to put on the record that this senator feels like that senator cruz has gone over the line. he basically has impugned the patriotism of the nominee. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he's served his country, and no one on this committee at anytime should impugn his character or his integrity. >> so, chuck todd, ted cruz has made a mark already. this isn't the first instance? >> no, he's not. i've been thinking about this, this new -- if you want to say this is more evidence. but you know, i remember a young rick santorum coming in breaking some traditions. >> boy, did he. >> breaking when he did this, three, four, five years lat
so over the line that even john mccain who lamb basted hagel a week ago came to the senator's defense. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> that's what cruz was doing. and john boehner couldn't stick to the script today for the softer, gentler, kinder gop. he told reporters at a breakfast briefing that obama doesn't have -- this is the new phrase. he doesn't have the guts to cut spending. today more republican intransigents are holding up again by demanding the speaker -- actually harry reid from nevada come up with 60 votes to move forward the vote. and senator rand paul put a hold on president obama's pick. joining me now is salon's joan walsh and washington post's dana milbank. they can't beat these people so they're doing this obstructing. they're trying to smear this guy. they know he's going to be secretary of defense. there is absolutely no purpose in what cruz is doing except trying to move he's more obnoxious than neocons are. they're just messing around with t
in common with chuck hagel than it does with john mccain. they are opposed to intervention. they're in favor of cutting defense budgets as part of an overrecall reduction in government spending. so libertarians like the idea of chuck hagel, who wants to be part of cuts and who wants to be less interventionist. remember, libertarians want to bring the troops home just as much as many liberals used to when george w. bush was president. so it's complicated for rand paul. he says he's fighting hagel on these principle grounds as it relates to benghazi, as it relates to the disclosure of documents and other things. but if libertarians had their way, they would prefer him to the guy who was just in there, leon panetta. >> rand paul is an intriguing character, if for no other reason than he always maintainses a very, very calm demeanor, but fires some heavy broadsides at the same time, one of which he fired at secretary of state hillary clinton during the benghazi hearing. let's take listen to what he said. >> and had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from be
in november 14, 2011, letter to senator john mccain and lindsey graham. leon panetta warned about the "devastating impact" of the sequester. few in the pentagon thought congress and the white house would take the nation to brink. >> bret: jepper if griffin at pentagon. thank you. u.s. factory production dropped in january after twoson months of gains. stocks finished the week flat. dow was up 8. s&p lost 1-1/2. the answer to the question what happened the night terrorist hit the u.s. facilefy in benghazi, libya, might be what day is it? almost every day brings another detail or revision or contradiction of what we heard earlier. tonight, chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge tells us what we know and what we don't. >> according to a leading republican who said he spoke with clapper, the top intelligence officer. >> i was told by clap they're the president was informed of the attack. >> as if the president wanted anything done, neither clapper office or the security council spokesman addressed the question. >> this is the most transparent administration in history. c
with chuck hagel. >> i want to play something that senator john mccain said on fox news thursday and get your take on the other side. take a listen. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, he was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> and that, my friend, is exactly what you just said, general, speaks exactly to what you just said. what kind of relationship will he have with congress once he's confirmed. >> well he's going to represent the national security interest of the united states up there so i think the question is really what kind of relationship does congress have with him? these men and women in the united states senate, in the congress, need to respect chuck hagel and they need to work with him and that's their obligation as elected representatives of the american people, just like it's his obligation to work with them. he'll do the best he can. he'll be straightforward. he'll be honest. maybe there will be some lingering resentments, but there shouldn't be. >> john allen,
of the organization. >> john: john mccain called your sport human dog fighting. he's changed his tune, saying they've cleaned up the sport. he's still not a fan, but they've made progress. you talk to these guys. i try not to because they drive me crazy. do they say we haven't had time to vote? what's in their head? they're losing millions of dollars. >> new york is a special place. it's certainly taking a bit longer for all this information to sink in. hopefully it will sink in this year. >> john: well, good luck. i hope it does. thank you, lawrence epstein. >>> later we talk to billionaire mark cuban about what would happen if the government ran sports. >>> next, ticket scalping. what you think you know may not be so. red lobster's 30 shrimp. wow, that's a lot of shrimp. [ male announcer ] it's red lobster's 30 shrimp! for $11.99 pair any two shrimp selections on one plate! like mango jalapeÑo shrimp and parmesan crunch shrimp. just $11.99. offer ends soon! i'm ryon stewart, and i sea food diffently. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes she is. [ bop ] [ male announcer ] could've had a
his friend and republican colleague john mccain. was there something personal there? >> there is always something personal in relationships between senators and chuck hagel is a former senator. i can't speculate on motives of each of the senators. they are probably different motives, an array of intent and purpose. i think there will be a vote this week in the committee, if not this week, next week, but soon. i believe there will be republican votes for senator hagel and if not in committee, at least on the floor. i believe he will be approved. i think the personal issues, hopefully, will be put behind us. most importantly, it will be a bipartisan vote. whatever the motives on a personal level, i hope partisanship is not part of this process as the american people watching that hearing may have concluded it was because the weight of the republican questioning, the prosecuting or crass examination aspect was so much on the republican side. >> do you agree with the old tradition that president's should be able to pick their own cabinet, choose the people with whom they
. >> mike: and hey, chris, nancy pelosis and john mccain on the show today. >> and we sat down with nancy pelosi. and one thing we talked about gun control she's calling for a study and obviously they want bans on guns and things like that. she says let's have a study whether or not this violence out of hollywood creates any violence in the real world and i said do we really need another study? here is a clip. >> why don't you go to your friends in hollywood and challenge them, shame them and say, knock it off? >> i do think whenever we do when you tell them it's evidence-based we have that throughout our proposal. in other words, we don't want to just be anecdotally writing bills. >> so the bottom line was, she was saying, you know, we're going after the gun lobby, but i'm not going to put any pressure on hollywood. >> so she moved not at all on that question he ththen? >> not a bit. >> tucker: nice try, not a bit. chris, we'll be watching. >> thanks a lot. and i say pelosi and mccain. with pelosi, quickly, a lot of talk about sequestration and whether it should be spending cuts or wheth
for something he shouldn't have, he he couldn't do it. when john mccain pressed him on the issue of whether or not, you know, he repudiated the staples about the surge. stumbled. he stammered he couldn't get himself. >> what's wrong with saying yes, i was against the surge? that wouldn't preclude. >> honesty is refreshing. if he said i was against the surge and you know what? i was wrong. the surge ended up, wog. i didn't think it would. i wasn't sure that it should it worked but you know what? i made a mistake on that. >> then they could have moved on. >> now they have camped out and built a fire and they have toasted marshmallows over this guy. >> governor huckabee's show 8:00 p.m. tonight on the fox news channel. who do you have coming up? >> general jack cain will be with us. four star general to talk about what's happening in the military. a couple of congressman to talk about will republicans go with the immigration policy? of course there is much more that i don't even have time to tell you. >> i enjoy the much more though. >> the machine more -- much more is the best. she is going t
mind this was all about the campaign. the campaign is over. john mccain and lindsey graham and senators and house -- >> i don't even think what she said is legitimate according to the president. illegitimate even to ask a question. be quiet. >> going to ask a question about this. because we're getting more information out of kaiser health news. put together a little research as to how much money we are spending on medicare and medicaid for illegal immigrants as they enter the emergency room. this is happening in states with large population of illegal immigrants such as florida, north carolina, california and others. where they go to emergency rooms, they are pregnant and the emergency room hand delsz their pregnancy and the delivery to the tune of $2 billion a year that we're spending on these pregnancies and these deliveries. >> that medicaid is spending and illegals aren't eligible for medicaid but they are getting anyway. the reason is that doctors and nurses just like teachers and pals shouldn't be charged with enforcing immigration law. federal government's job not doing it illega
the testimony, we had it largely here on the channel yesterday. here he is tangling with john mccain over the troop surge in iraq which mr. hagel opposed. >> if you would like me to explain why -- >> i actually would like an answer. yes or no? >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated that, as i've said. my answer is i'll defer that judgment to history. >> i think history has already made a judgment about the surge, sir, and you're on the wrong side of it. >> do i think it is right that israel was committing a, quote, sickening slaughter as you said on the floor of the senate? >> i would like to read all of it, what i said. first, i said many, many times, senator, every nation has a right to defend itself. >> do you think a sickening slaughter would constitute a war crime? >> no. depends on, they were attacked. depends on many factors. >> why do you think that the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be the secretary of defense? >> i have a difficult enough time with american politics, and, senator, i have no idea. but thank yo
